Unfurnished rentals in France - currently available
Unfurnished rentals are easy to find in France, but the problem for people coming to France from other countries, is that they are often not that easy to rent. You often need to produce a mountain of paperwork and to pay a substantial portion of the rent upfront. Most French rental agents have a checklist of documents you need to provide to rent an unfurnished property. This list usually includes copies of 3 months' pay slips, 2 years of French tax returns and the all important French bank account details (le RIB). In the absence of these, you will be faced with a difficult job trying to convince the agent to rent to you. Certainly, you will need to get official translations of your birth certificates, marriage certificates and proof of earnings going back at least 3 years.
Most unfurnished rentals in France are normally for a period of 3 years. If you are looking to rent for a period of less than this, you will then hit another roadblock. We helped a client secure a 2 year unfurnished rental through a French rental agent (who we had been working with for over 6 years). The client was required to pay 12 months rent in advance plus 3 months' security deposit. In addition, the client had to put a further 12 months' rent into an escrow account. This whole process took a full 3 months to complete. It should also be added that in addition to the money involved, the client also had to provide a mountain of paperwork (3 copies of each document) to prove previous residencies, legal status in France, passports, marriage certificates, birth certificates, etc., etc.
Renting an Unfurnished property in France
We try to make the whole process of renting an Unfurnished rental property a lot easier. Generally, when arranging an unfurnished rental in France, all we require from the client is for them to provide copies of their ID and some evidence of his/her ability to pay the rent. To reserve the property, you will need to pay a one month security deposit, with the rent paid in advance at the start of each month.
